Former professional cricketer and reality TV star Lee Carseldine will be the special guest speaker at the upcoming South Burnett Mayor’s Community Charity Breakfast.
The annual charity breakfast, which launches the South Burnett’s Relay For Life fundraising campaign, will be held on Friday, April 30, in the Tobruk Room at the Kingaroy RSL Club
Lee played for the Queensland Bulls between 1998-2004 and 2007-2011, and later for the Rajasthan Royals.
After retiring from first class cricket, Lee was a commentator on ABC Grandstand and Fox Sports as well as starring in Season 3 of Australian Survivor in 2016.
In 2020, he was part of Australian Survivor: All Stars.
“After retiring from my professional cricket career, it was time to push myself and find a new direction for my future,” Lee said.
“Following the completion of a double masters’ degree, I launched two businesses and joined different projects to share my wealth of knowledge in business, sports and entrepreneurship.
“I have also since dedicated myself to giving back, especially to the sporting community I have been so immersed in over my career.
“I look forward to sharing my experiences at the Mayor’s Community Charity Breakfast for Relay for Life in Kingaroy.”
Mayor Brett Otto said it was wonderful to have the Mayors Community Charity Breakfast returning after last year’s disruptions due to COVID-19.
He said South Burnett’s Relay For Life one of the most successful fundraisers in Queensland, “punching well above its weight” in raising funds for the Cancer Council Queensland.
“This South Burnett fundraiser is led by Mr Carl Rackemann and his hard-working team of volunteers. (It) is such an important endeavour for our local community,” Mayor Otto said.
Tickets are $30 per person, which includes a hot breakfast, tea, coffee and juice.
RSVP by Friday, April 23, by contacting Council’s Executive Services team on 1300-789-279 or by email
Tickets can also be purchased at any Council Customer Service Centre.
